Caring88738550: "My father-in-law was in Pinebrook Personal Care & Retirement Center. I would not recommend that. Very understaffed. It had a smell. The food was good. They have a lot of activities. The residents didn't talk a whole lot. They have a lot of dancing, singing, bingo. They take the residents to places, like to go shopping. "

The rooms weren't anything spectacular but it had all the basics that could be needed. However I feel that they could have been made a bit more acces... (read more)

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Orwigsburg

Orwigsburg is a borough in Schuylkill County and home to around 3,000 people. The borough strives to create a community atmosphere, and seniors can get involved with many events throughout the year. Around 24 percent of the population is aged over 65, and they can find accommodation in one of the borough's three assisted living facilities or one of the 14 in nearby communities. These facilities are formally known as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs) in Pennsylvania. They're licensed and monitored by the Department of Human Services' Office of Long-Term Living.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Orwigsburg

  • Pennsylvania's tax policies have many benefits for retirees. All forms of retirement income, including Social Security, pensions and retirement funds, are tax-exempt for residents over 60, and sales taxes are relatively low, which leads to big savings for seniors.
  • Orwigsburg has cold winters, with low temperatures in January averaging 18 degrees. The borough gets around 33 inches of snow each year, which is 7 inches more than the national average. This can be difficult for seniors who enjoy spending time outside, especially during the winter months.
  • Orwigsburg's crime rate is lower than 65 percent of America's towns and cities at just 11 per 1,000 residents. The borough's property crime rate of 9.01 is almost half the state average of 17.43. Violent crime is also low, with a rate of 1.67, compared to Pennsylvania's average of 3.16. Safety-conscious seniors may find the low level of crime reassuring.
  • Public transport options in Orwigsburg are limited; however, seniors may be able to access Schuylkill Transportation System's Shared Ride Van Program. Fares for trips to certain destinations are subsidised.
  • The cost of living in Orwigsburg is rated at 91 on Sperling's index, 9 points above the U.S. average, but this is largely due to low housing prices. Grocery and transportation costs are close to the national average, and health care costs are 20 points higher, which may impact the budgets of seniors with health conditions.
  • The Orwigsburg area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Pottsville.
